There is one buttugly Bldg in SF but I can't find any pics that'll do it the right injustice. It's the Fox Plaza Apartment Tower. Really hideous for such a beautiful city.
that building looks like snakeskin.......

Spires were always a part of New York's skyscrapers and, imo, add alot of character to the city. What would buildings like Chrysler, 40 wall street, General Electric bldg, American International bldg(so on and so forth) be without their spires!? Sure nowadays bldgs such as NY times or to an extent BOA have silly looking spires but it's nothing new for this city to use them. Hopefully, future buildings of NY can incorporate them more harmonously to make the respective tower more attractive and bold rather than the opposite. Tower Verre, anyone?

Couldn't agree more. It's alot worse in person with that disastrous base it has. I really hope it will someday get the boot.

Sorry guys, it just doesn't do it for me. It's nearly 80 years old and it's still the tallest building in the most powerful city in the most powerful country in the world. The ESB is just so bland and depressing and to tell you the truth, nothing really stands out to me, it just looks like a big boring gray statue. It most definitely isn't the ugliest building, but it's certainly ugly(in my eyes)
agreed!
